Way cool @etheling !! I've been thinking about doing this same exact thing. I've been perusing for Atari 2600s that are non-functioning because I can't bring myself to 'descrate' a working one. LOL. Doesn't seem like anyone held on to a non-functioning unit. (or at least I can't find one)
@Ohris what usb encoders are you using? because depending on what port you plug in controllers, decides the player number
Port 0 has has highest priority for player 1
@mediamogul Oh, I didn't realize its from the same group. I am into romhacks and mods since last year and only see the good stuff. The first time I saw Nude Punch-Out was so hilarious. More then 20 years later, a lot happened and still is happening.
Just a last report. So, I have installed my new case and the temperature difference is like day and night, dropping around 30° Celcius (from 80° to 50°, but just a small test, it will heat up a little more, but you get the idea)! Its one huge heatsink (whole case is one big heatsink) and no extra boards installed. I am just happy, plus the right emulator and no over heating issues and no fan noise! Still not really well tested, but I can see clearly the benefit.
Just someone is interested in it too, its very inexpensive also. My new case is: BIQU Aluminium Raspberry Pi Modell B for 11 Euros in Germany.
@herb_fargus lol. Found a half a beetle. When i was a kid i opened a snack size dole can of mixed fruit and it was just water and rocks. They didnt even give me mixed rocks....
My ex wifes ex husband got a back of doritos and it had a beetle that was coated in the cheese powder and deep fried. It was pretty gross seeing the pics.
You'll probably need to get a different screen at the minimum, as those usually use something proprietary and you won't see drivers readily available. It's tough to gauge how much room is inside the case, but it might work. PSPs have been modded before, and this is essentially a knock-off of that.
